Exceptional 10.0
perfect affordable spot
Perfect affordable spot- clean, great location, very helpful host. would definitely stay again. tip: double check to see if you have a shared bathroom, if this is important to you. for us it worked out fine- we didn't even have to wait to use the bathroom and our fellow guests were clean, but we were surprised, which was evidently my fault.

Great, friendly, comfortable & centrally located
A great place to stay, central to all amenities and places to visit. The host, Jon was friendly and in fact, right from the start ,all the Butterfly hosts were very communicative and informative. The room we had was clean and the beds comfortable. We enjoyed the informal kitchen place for breakfast etc and the communal fridge was very well stocked with butter, milk and other goodies. I highly recommend this wonderful guesthouse .

Perfect for the price
This will never get the number of stars common sense dictates as it has a communal bathroom and it is not a new build. It was great, the host was super helpful and had loads of assistance with trips. Little things like there being free food with the use of the kitchen helped loads. For the price it is perfect in a very expensive place. Thoroughly recommended.
